Description of problem:
I rely on isapnp to configure an ISA ISDN card. rc.sysinit contains the check
"if [ -x /sbin/isapnp -a -f /etc/isapnp.conf -a ! -f /proc/isapnp ] then" .....
run isapnp if $PNP = yes.
/proc/isapnp always seems to be there at the time this runs, so my isdn hardware
was never configured and the later "isdn start" would fail to find the card.
I removed the last term, checking for ! /proc/isapnp and the problem is resolved
though I am unclear as to the implications of this or why this has caused no-one
else a problem! maybe /proc/isapnp is not normally created at this time.

Running the userland isapnp tools while the kernel mode ISAPnP support
(/proc/isapnp) is active can be dangerous in some cases; that's why the check is
